So I had 22 chicks hatch from randomly selected eggs. The result, 11 male and 11 female.
This is what I would normally see over a season. I have chosen hatching eggs for size, shape and general quality.
Now for the selected, rounded, less pointed experiment.
In the first round 18 chicks reached sexing age with a disappointing 12 male and 6 female. The eggs I selected can be seen in my previous posts.
In the next round I incubated the eggs and this resulted in 26 chicks. 12 male and 14 female.
So in total from the selected eggs I got 24 male and 20 female.
Once again, close to the margin of 50%that i am used to.
